Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Charts


public sealed class Shadow :


The Shadow class is used to contain the shadow settings. The properties exposed by this class allow you to customize the shadow color (Shadow.Color), size (Shadow.Size) and visibility (Shadow.Visible).


An object of the Shadow type can be accessed via the Shadow properties of different chart elements (for instance, the legend‘s LegendBase.Shadow property, a pane‘s XYDiagramPaneBase.Shadow property, a label’s SeriesLabelBase.Shadow property, etc).


This example demonstrates the possibilities of customizing a chart diagram‘s panes‘ appearance at runtime.

XYDiagramPane myPane = new XYDiagramPane("The Pane's Name");

myPane.BackColor = Color.Aqua;
myPane.FillStyle.FillMode = FillMode.Empty;

myPane.BorderVisible = true;
myPane.BorderColor = Color.Blue;

myPane.Shadow.Visible = true;
myPane.Shadow.Color = Color.LightGray;
myPane.Shadow.Size = 2;
